Idaho Vaccine Exemption for Daycare & Schools
No shots, no school is simply not true! A signed parental statement is the only thing necessary to evoke your child’s immunization exemption.
YES, there are 3 Exemptions to Vaccines for Idaho. Idaho law allows a parent or guardian to claim an immunization exemption for their child for medical, religious or other reasons. A medical exemption must be completed by a licensed physician. While the schools or daycare might recommend that exemptions for religious or other reasons be documented on the form provided by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Immunization Program the law does NOT REQUIRE A FORM.
Parents have a right to OPT their children out of some (or all) state-mandated vaccines for daycare and school. The three exemptions for the state are medical, religious, and ‘other.’
